When you disconnect a device from a port, the Local Manager retains the device's configuration data. You can clear this data and return the port to its factory default configuration using the command config system clear port from the system resource.
[admin@UplogixLM]# port 2/1 tasman 6300 tios tasman [admin@UplogixLM] (port2/1)]# exit [admin@UplogixLM]# config system clear port 2/1 Clearing port 2/1 will delete all associated data. Continue? (y/n): y port2/1 cleared
Navigate to the port to verify it has been reset to factory defaults:
[admin@UplogixLM]# port 2/1 native
Use an asterisk to clear all ports on a slot. This automatically assumes there are 16 ports on the card, instead of detecting the hardware in use.
[admin@UplogixLM]# config system clear port 1/* Clearing port 1/* will delete all associated data. Continue? (y/n): y port1/1 cleared port1/2 cleared port1/3 cleared port1/4 cleared port1/5 cleared port1/6 cleared port1/7 cleared port1/8 cleared port1/9 cleared port1/10 cleared port1/11 cleared port1/12 cleared port1/13 cleared port1/14 cleared port1/15 cleared port1/16 cleared
If you are removing an option card or virtual slot, use the config system clear slot command to ensure the hardware is completely cleared from the database.
[admin@UplogixLM]# config system clear slot 4 Slot 4 is about to be cleared. Do you want to commit these changes? (y/n): y
